CARHARTT PARK, KENTUCKY...Near the Birthplace of Abraham Lincoln

Hamilton Carhartt has long been a source of inspiration, for amongst other things his honorable business practices and treatment of both employees and his fellow man. His respect for President Abraham Lincoln is seen in these vintage Carhartt promotional pieces.

  2. Great postcard. I'm curious as to how many different postcards Carhartt issued for this movement. So far there's at least two. The one you show and the one I posted on May 25th. Even though the cards are basically identical, the variations are obvious.
